There is a new fashion trend, and it is not hard to spot! Neon is currently as big as it is bright and has adorned the catwalks of all the major designers in recent months, from high-end Prada to more affordable Zara.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, celebrities have been queuing up to wear neon, with Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian West and Skepta all spotted in neon hues from a range of fashion houses.
If you think neon is just for celebs, think again. This fashion trend is completely accessible to everyone. It may scream futuristic and be reminiscent of something out of a dystopian movie; however, there are lots of ways to wear it without having to break your bank balance or look like an extra from Blade Runner.
From day to night
Eveningwear does not have to be minimal and little black dresses. Believe it or not, neon can be sophisticated and not look out of place at the smartest evening event. Just be sure not to over accessorise. Let the neon do the talking by wearing minimal makeup and your hair in a simple style.
Winter is still upon us and cosy jumpers are the way forward. From colour block neon knits to funky bright patterns, neon knitwear can work with almost any outfit. Pair with jeans and trainers for a laidback look or over skirts and dresses, such as a navy maxi dress, for more formal occasions.
Separates or colour blocks
While a full-on neon outfit can look super-striking, it may not be something everyone is comfortable with; however, neon can still work really well as a pop of colour. Think classic black cigarette pants with a bright neon shirt for a crisp and cool look. If you want to go full-on neon, check out a bright playsuit or boiler suit.
Accessorise to the max
For those who are still working their way up to the full-on neon look, accessories are a great way to sneak in this trend; for example, a bright yellow or pink neon clutch would work really well with a navy maxi dress at AX Paris or another fashion brand.
Whatever type and style of neon you opt for, you are sure to stand out from the crowd and turn heads.
